2020 Artists in Residence in Everglades Application

AIRIE presents a one-month, multi-disciplinary artist residency in partnership with Everglades National Park. Artists are invited to live and work for one month inside Everglades National Park, working with AIRIE and the Park to enhance their understanding of this unique and fragile ecosystem.

Each artists/artist group is provided a mini-grant of $1000, a furnished, air-conditioned apartment, 24/7 access to the Everglades National Park and introductions to park rangers, scientists, biologists, cultural and community leaders.

The park can accommodate one resident per month, and residents are expected to stay the entire month.

AIRIE welcomes visual artists, scholars, composers, choreographers and writers to seek both solitude and solidarity in the inspiring environment of Everglades National Park.

Visual arts include painting, sculpture, photography, installation and video. Writers include poets and authors of fiction, creative non-fiction and creative journalism. Composers, musicians, dancers and performance artists are welcome to apply. Work submitted should be of professional quality. No student work will be eligible.

OVERVIEW
The Cultural Center Crosswalks Project will be located at SE 1st Ave. connecting City Hall to the Cultural Center. The artistic scope of work is to develop and install three crosswalk designs. This is a community engagement project and the selected artist(s) will work with residents/volunteers to install the artwork. The artwork lifespan of the project is predicted to be five years. This project is part of the NEA Grant awarded to the City in 2017.

THEME & REQUIREMENTS
This is a community engagement project and the selected artist(s) will work with residents/volunteers to install the artwork. The purpose of this project is to not only beautify the streets and connect City Hall and the Cultural Center, but also to strengthen ties within the community and give them a sense of pride and ownership to the finished artwork.

The crosswalk designs should be an abstract, repeating pattern that is easily translated into a stencil. The shapes must be solid colors, no gradients. The Crosswalks should convey a sense of place and utilize easy design elements with the purpose of refreshing the colors in the future, if need be. Designs should be simple and beautiful. Specific paint must be used. Since this is an outdoor floor mural, the artist must use paint that can stand up to not only weather wear and tear but car traffic as well.

This project is functional public art and will serve the purpose of providing a safe and beautiful street enhancement.

PROJECT LOCATION
The location for the crosswalks will be on SE 1st Ave. connecting City Hall and the Cultural Arts Center. There will be three crosswalks in total: one larger crosswalk (43’ by 35’) in between two smaller crosswalks (68’ x 10 ‘ and 32.5’ by 10’). Visit this website for details on locations, https://pbpublicart.com/assets/images/misc/Location.jpg

The City will assist with road closures during the installation and pressure clean the street area prior to design installation.

ARTWORK PURCHASE BUDGET
The purchase budget established for the project is $15,000.00. The price will include all insurance, taxes, fees, permits, materials and installation.

PERMITS

It shall be the artist’s responsibility, where applicable, to obtain all necessary permits prior to fabrication and installation. The artist will ensure that the design will be code compliant and can stand up to South Florida weather conditions.

Call for Proposals: MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation (Santa Barbara, CA)

Museum of Exploration and Innovation 2020
For International artists

MOXI -- The Wolf Museum of Exploration and Innovation -- opened in Santa Barbara, CA in early 2017.  In its first year it welcomed over 175,000 visitors.  MOXI's mission is to ignite learning through interactive experiences in science and creativity.  The museum has garnered numerous accolades, including being listed by Fodor's Travel as one of the top 10 new museums in the world.  MOXI’s three floors are filled with interactive and hands-on exhibits and experiences.  MOXI believes in the importance of art and creativity, and supporting that belief, has dedicated two museum spaces to rotating 3-month interactive media artworks.  These spaces are the Interactive Media Theater and the Bridge.

This call represents MOXI's second open application for artists and art collectives to propose works, for the year 2020.  For reference, recent artworks have incorporated elements such as Kinect-based body interaction; camera-based interaction, virtual reality and augmented reality.

The design language of MOXI, on every floor, invites visitors to interact fully.  As a result, exhibits must be designed to be highly durable and robust to any kind of interaction from adults and children, including climbing, hanging, pushing and pulling.

Following the close of this call, applications will be reviewed by MOXI's Curator of Interactive Media and the MOXI Exhibits staff.  Up to eight qualified applications will be chosen, and those artists will be offered $200 each to develop a more detailed exhibit proposal including drawings, detailed budget and reference letters; and to have one or more interviews with MOXI's committee.

As part of the current application process, artists are asked to submit a 3 paragraph exhibit proposal summary for either one or two exhibits.  The summary can include up to two embedded images in the PDF, and should also included an estimated total budget.  Budgets can be up to $10,000, inclusive of all artist fees, travel, hardware, software fabrication, installation, etc.  For the current application, budget detail is NOT required.  (Details of budget will come in the second phase.)

The review committee will select artists that best meet the requirements, based on the submitted information.  The following criteria will be examined:
- Quality of the artist's past work, both aesthetic and technical, as represented by the media submissions.
- Experience of the artist in creating interactive artworks.
- Experience of the artist in successfully designing, fabricating and completing public artworks that are highly durable and robust; on time and within budget.
- The artist's training, education and artist statement.
- Quality of the proposed interactive exhibit and alignment with MOXI's mission and audience.

ACLU SoCal Inaugural Artist-in-Residence
For Southern CA artists

The ACLU of Southern California inaugural Artist-in-Residence program will embed an artist into the ACLU SoCal for a year-long collaboration. This unique opportunity will create a platform for the artist to work closely with the ACLU SoCal in developing, implementing, and promoting creative strategies through the lens of the artist’s practice.

The Artist-in-Residence (AIR) will work with the ACLU SoCal to develop creative and contemporary strategies for highlighting both the ACLU SoCal’s current activities as well as its history, which could include:

  • Marketing collateral

  • Special edition artwork and prints

  • Booth / tabling installation for outreach events

  • Mural

These are just examples of the kinds of initiatives the AIR could become involved in.

More broadly, the AIR can aid in developing in an artistic approach for any aspect of the ACLU SoCal’s activities. Using art as a framework and material, this partnership will allow the ACLU SoCal to conceptualize its work and activities from an empowered position of change through creation. It is through this spirit of productive, creative energy that the AIR and the ACLU SoCal will engage allies and build awareness.

The Perception Project is a Los Angeles based art-for-healing non-profit organization devoted to providing survivors of trauma with services that take on creative forms as expressive outlets and serve the local community. Between an artist/survivor collaboration, the muse provides a personal story, and the artist creates a masterpiece showcasing the muse's strength and inner beauty. These works are showcased through public art exhibitions designed to promote mental-health awareness, then gifted to the muses as a symbol of their strength. 

DESCRIPTION

About the Project:

The volunteer artist will

a) Receive a written story based upon the experiences of a trauma survivor (muse)

OR

b) Meet a trauma survivor (muse) in person to listen to the muse’s experiences with the presence of a therapist or mental health professional

and use it as inspiration to create an artwork meant to empower and inject positivity to the muse. Artwork is donated to the muse after the end of the exhibition. Acceptable mediums are canvas, wood panels, paper, digital prints, mixed media, visual art, and photography. A gift card or an art supplies goodie bag will be allocated to each artist (or artist team) to cover partial cost of materials. Artist travel fees are not covered.

Art Goals:

Works of art are created then gifted to the muses (survivors) as a symbol of their internal strength to continue thriving in life. The Perception Project devotes its creative platform towards promoting mental health awareness, maximizing community partnerships, local community involvement, providing meaningful work experience, and above all encouraging a shift towards positive perspective.

Site:

The art exhibition will be held at a private gallery in Los Angeles, CA. The event will be open to the public.

The City of West Hollywood Arts Division is seeking proposals from

social service providers by expanding their services through artist-led
programs.

All artistic disciplines are welcomed including, but not limited to, visual
arts, media/new genre, performance, film/video, music/sound, choreography,
and writing. As a pilot program, we are open to various approaches to
engaging the participants – from group artmaking project experiences over a
period of time to sequential hands-on training in artistic practices. The
selected artist or artists will operate under a flat-rate contract for
services with the City to include a materials budget. The residency is
non-residential in that room and board will not be provided, however it is
anticipated that the artist will develop a “residency relationship” with
the organization and populations served.

The programs will likely take place at subsidized housing projects for
older and/or disabled and/or low income adults. Applicants should have a
strong interest in these populations and ideally previous experience
working with them.

CHARLOTTE STREET 2019-20 STUDIO RESIDENCIES

APPLICATION DEADLINE  MAY 27th 2019

Charlotte Street Foundation is seeking applications from visual artists, performing artists, and writers interested in its Studio Residency Program. Applications are due Monday, May 27th 2019. The year-long studio residency term runs September 2019 through September 2020. 


Applications will be accepted through CaFE  www.callforentry.org.
Charlotte Street Foundation administers an independent jury panel each term.

Entering its sixteenth year, the Studio Residency Program provides free studio and rehearsal spaces to exceptional emerging and/or already accomplished artists in need of workspace in which to create and to develop their creative processes, professional practices, and peer networks. Through the program’s offerings—which include studio space, required monthly meetings, presentations, studio visits, mentorships, public programs, exhibitions, and access to a multidisciplinary network of artist peers—Charlotte Street’s Studio Residency Program encourages creative production, artistic experimentation and collaboration, professional development, and community building.

Charlotte Street Foundation addresses artist’s need for studio space in Kansas City by securing vacant downtown office space, in partnership with generous real estate owners. Since its inception in 2004, the program has supported hundreds of artists. Approximately 30 artists will be in residence during the year-long term (September 2019 through September 2020). Charlotte Street strives for an equal mix of emerging and established artists representing a multiplicity of disciplines. Applicants will be notified by July 2019. 

Studio Space:
Currently, Charlotte Street Foundation provides studios at:
Town Pavilion, 1100 Walnut, 6th Floor, Kansas City, MO 64106.

  • All artists- 24-hour access & wifi

  • Visual artist studios- 16 private spaces and dedicated areas within larger, open shared spaces available

  • Performing artist studios- 24-hour access with dedicated time slots, rehearsal space with dance stage and Marley floor for dancers/choreographers and a separate rehearsal space with a piano for music and theatre/performance artists.

  • Writer studios- 5 private and semi-private studios

  • All studios are workspaces only; the program does not provide residential accommodations.

  • The studios are not furnished and do not include access to specialized equipment, tools, materials, etc.

Program components:

Participating artists are expected to commit to:

  • Advancing their artistic practices and professional development

  • Building a sense of community with fellow studio artists

  • Leveraging their residencies toward future opportunities

Note: Artists who do not make full, creative use of the opportunity may be asked to leave the program.

Also note: All artists selected for residencies will be required to complete goal-setting worksheets and meet with Charlotte Street Foundation staff for short, in-person interviews prior to the commencement of their residencies in order to review goals, plans, space needs, etc.

Other benefits include:

  • Monthly meetings —all-resident group meetings occur the Third Monday evening of each month throughout the term. The meetings allow the artists to connect, collaborate, and share resources. Guest speakers are also scheduled throughout the term to build community, present opportunities and professional development tips to the residents.

  • Mentorships — Residents are paired with volunteer artists or arts professionals from the broader community who agree to meet periodically over the course of the term. Each artist completes a goal-setting worksheet at the onset of their residency which is shared with their mentor to help guide the objectives of the mentorship.

  • Studio Visits— Artists, gallerists, curators, writers, etc. are invited for one-on-one studio visits with residents, arranged both by CSF and by residents themselves. These visits provide experience, feedback, and new connections for residents.

  • Open Studios —The annual Spring Open Studios provides opportunities for residents to meet and share their work with the broader community. The public is invited to visit the residency studios, meet artists and see new and in-process artworks, experience live performances, hear artist talks, writer's readings, and more.

  • Resident exhibition / performances / public programs —  Other opportunities to share their work with the public include a Slide Slam evening presentation, and exhibition and public performance opportunities in Kansas City.

  • Residency Blog- Charlotte Street Foundation hosts a residency blog featuring artist profiles. Resident artists are expected to author posts throughout the term. CSF utilizes the blog for curatorial selections, studio visits, artist interviews and social media.

Volunteering:

Artists participating in the program are REQUIRED to volunteer 5 hours per month assisting with Charlotte Street efforts, including gallery-sitting at CSF venues, distributing promotional cards for CSF events, assisting with exhibition installation, community outreach programs, and other related activities.

 

Eligibility:

Residencies are granted to selected artists for one-year terms, which run September through September. Artists who make exceptional use of their studios are eligible to apply for a second year term, with their applications subject to the same competitive review as new applicants. Full-time students will NOT be considered.

  • Visual artists working in all media are encouraged to apply. Note, the use of toxic materials (spray paint, oil paint mediums) in studios is prohibited. The studio spaces do not enable the use of a kiln, welding equipment, or other heavy machinery. The majority of spaces are not light- or sound-tight.

ABOUT US: Located at 1300 Gendy Street, the FWCAC is part of the most architecturally significant museum districts in the United States. The striking modern Herbert Bayer building (with a later O’Neil Ford addition) opened to the public in 1954 as home to one of the most prestigious and oldest collecting organizations in the state of Texas, the Modern Museum of Fort Worth. When, in 2002, the Modern moved down the street, the Fort Worth Community Arts Center opened. The building has exhibited world class art and supported the performing arts for more than half a century. The Arts Council manages the FWCAC, provides leadership and funding to local arts organizations through our competitive Grants Program and administers the Fort Worth Public Art program.

SUBMISSION: Images must be JPEGs with minimum width/height of 800 pixels, maximum size as 3MB. Do not use spaces or special characters (!@$, etc) in image file names. Video and audio files can be submitted through links. FWCAC reserves the right to reject inaccurately represented work, or incomplete submission.

PRESENTATION: Work must be suitably framed (or sides cleanly finished or painted) and ready for hanging. D-rings should be used for heavy works, wires for works under 5lbs. Drawings, prints, watercolors and pastels on paper must be under Plexiglass.

SALES: All work will be for sale unless the artist informs the gallery to the contrary. 40% of proceeds from sales will go to FWCAC and the remainder to the artists.

DEADLINE: All applications must be submitted before midnight (CMT) on September 1, 2019. FWCAC will notify accepted applicants only by late September.
